Well, I understand the therm "lightrail" as a hybrid between tram and metro. In Czech republic there are three "lightrail" like tram tracks. These tracks are in Czech republic usually called "tram expressways" or "tram high speed tracks." These three tracks are:
1st: Prague tram expressway between Hlubočepy and Barrandov districts.
2nd: Prague tram expressway between Braník and Modřany districts.
3rd: Interurban tram expressway between Liberec and Jablonec nad Nisou cities. Also this tram expressway has a more narrow gauge than reaining two (1000mm, remaining 1435mm)
Here are pictures of them:

Tatra T3 tram on tram expressway between Braník and Modřany districts

Note that the train is a MG2/1 and there is third rail visible below the catwalk.
Well, my dreams are crushed.
Begone 3rd rail.
I should have known that there was a twist.
You're right. That picture was photoshoped. I checked the the Simvliet centraal and no 3rd rail with catwalk wasn't there.
If you want to make a very fast ride, just disable ATB/ZUB, put trottle to 1.00 and enjoy.
